Cannot map drive W10

Main PC...
I have about 4 other drives and folders on other pc's successfully mapped to this main pc...

Problem PC...
I have file and print sharing turned on...
I have shared the folder I want and "everyone" has full control...
I have a drive from my MAIN PC mapped to this Problem PC...
So mapping a drive IS WORKING one way only...

When I go to the Main PC and try to map the shared folder from the Problem PC...
The mapped folder does not appear in the Main PC...
File Explorer > Computer > Map Network Drive > Choose Drive Letter > Browse...the shared folder on the problem PC does NOT show up...however...2 other PC's that have shared drives DO show up...

So it seems to me the issue is in the Problem PC...something in sharing that did not happen...

Info...
All computers run out of the same switch from same router...I have NO subnets...
IP address are good...
All computers are in same workgroup...
All computers use the same account name and password...
All computers have file and print sharing turned ON...
All computers have "everyone" with full control permissions...
All computers run either Win 7 Pro or Win 10 Pro...

I  have been fighting this off an on for 2-3 days and I'm getting no where...

What am I missing...??????

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Did you look at all Security options for the shared folder .....
Right Click > Properties > Security Tab > Edit
Right Click > Properties > Security Tab > Advanced

Some settings from the above will reset permissions for all files in the shared folder

Does the share have a password?
Windows 10 will not access a share with a blank password.
